This practicum report represents an account of my experience with the Elderly Services Program under Mental Health and Addiction Services, Northern Health Authority, Prince George British Columbia. Though this experience I was able to achieve my learning goals in areas of clinical assessment, case management, adult protection investigations, interprofessional practice and working with older adults who experience various mental health issues. Included are the observations of the organizational shift in services to older adult clients. Research literature in the various topic areas compliments this practical learning experience. This report also highlights components of ethical geriatric social work practice with the application of life course and ecological perspectives as guiding theoretical models influencing practice.
